Question zfs import

Just set a zfs pool last week. I have 3 drives the primary with the os on the the other two as a zfs mirror.
I was just wondering if the primary fails and I replace it am I likely to have any problems accessing the pool with zpool import.
I know no one can give a definite answer but just looking for any bodies experiences.
When I get time I will test it for my self too

Just done a search and found this handy post plus a few others

If the primary drive is not part of the zpool, then there are no issues. Just replace it, configure it to use zfs, and away you go.

If the primary drive is part of the pool, then you just have to do a zpool replace to add the new drive to the pool as a replacement of the old drive.
